Emphasis in the laboratory is on technique.  The lab class exists to provide experience in handling cultures and related materials.  It also serves as a valuable means of illustrating and reinforcing concepts learned in lecture.

Laboratory Rules and Safety:

Safe laboratory practices must be maintained at all times.  Although student injuries in the microbiology laboratory are rare, you should be aware of some special hazards and precautions.

1.   Students who take, or care for someone taking, immunosuppressive drugs, are pregnant, or have other medical conditions should get approval from their doctor before taking this course.
